Wonderful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit - the cottage was perfect for our little family of four with two young children. Appreciate the proximity to beaches as well as downtown Holland.

Thank you!

Perfect Michigan getaway

  • 5 of 5

Another stay at the cottage with more great memories! We love this cottage and the convenient location. It's clean, modern, bright and has a lake view. Short drives to the beach, restaurants and Downtown Holland. Our kids also enjoy playing in the large yard while we relax on the deck.

Livonia, Michigan

Lives up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

My family just came back from staying at this "perfect little cottage." It sure was! We had friends staying at Holland State Park, but with two small children, we needed some place more family friendly. All of the hotels were in downtown Holland a few miles away. Then we found this! It was very affordable (about what we'd pay for a hotel, actually) and much more cozy and comfortable. It is very well maintained and updated. Though it is small, the inside is actually quite spacious. We had several of the aforementioned friends over for dinner and there was more than enough seating space in the big living room. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils. We highly recommend this place and will look for reasons to come back to Holland and back to the Perfect Little Cottage as soon as possible!

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the perfect little cottage, its name sake stating it all! Everything is provided, with thought given to detail when stocking home! Cottage was clean and homey, I especially enjoyed the landscaping and views of water. AC worked great, nice hot water, good water pressure, beds were comfortable. The fireworks were an added bonus our family enjoyed from the living room! This cottage is located within 15 min of about any shopping that can be imagined ( make sure to check out the farmers market and down town of a kind) The cottage is also ideally located for outdoor activities...beaches, nature preserves and bike/walking paths are all close and easily accessible. We highly recommend this cottage!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage fulfilled all our expectations! Everything we needed was supplied. All was clean and in great condition. The location was right where we needed to be to access Holland State Park and vicinity but also kept us in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect for vacation and we would definitely stay again!

Lovely Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We came to Holland to visit relatives and to explore the area. We wanted to find somewhere we could stay near my cousins and this property was ideal. This is a nice cottage in a quiet area and offered at a reasonable price. There is a partial view of lake Macatawa through the houses opposite and there are trees to the side and rear. The property has a lovely front and side patio complete with chairs and gas BBQ. We often saw Squirrels, Rabbits and wild birds on the lawn and patio. The property has a private drive way that is easy to get into and our of and the road outside is very quite. There are a few small stores nearby for urgent needs and a good grocery store about 4 miles away. State park is very close and Mt Pisgah is only a few minutes drive. There are bikes for all ages and an attachment for towing very young children in the shed. The property is well equiped although we were disappointed to discover that it only has no bath, only a shower. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful. There are also a good selection of tourist information leaflets available in the property and a decent wifi internet connection to get all the latest information. We would stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting Holland.
